About Megs Aussie Milk Bar

What is an Aussie Milk Bar?

A milk bar is tradi-tionally a suburban social venue and snack bar that sold light refreshments, fresh sandwiches, ham-burgers, milkshakes, meat pies, various sweets, groceries and newspapers. The traditional Austra-lian milk bar enjoyed it’s heyday during the 1940’s-1980’s, much like the American Diner. The milk bar as a social venue was gradually replaced by fast food franchises, though they are still found in many areas, often serving as a local corner or conven-ience store.

What about Megs?

Megs is a local gal who travelled down under where she met and married, a fair dinkum Aussie bloke, Haydn. Megs fell in love with Australian cof-fee, food and lifestyle whilst training local baristas for a specialist coffee roaster and operating their café. Haydn also has 20 years’ experience in the restaurant and tourism industry and together, with their young family, they bring their experience to the USA to share some good ol’ Aussie hospitality. So, C’mon in, say G’day and grab some tucker.
